‘What Light’ Brightened The Holidays

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset


Sierra’s family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it’s a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other. 

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb’s past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

What Light is a love story that’s moving and life-affirming and completely unforgettable.

Rose-Worthy Features

If you a looking for a cozy winter book then this is the book for you.

Caleb was an interesting character compared to Sierra. When I first read about Caleb, I thought he was kind of crazy but once I read more about him, I realized he is just really misunderstood. Caleb is sweet and overall a really nice character.

The plot was fine. It followed Sierra and her struggling to come to terms that her parents tree farm may be shutting down, while she also tries to figure out her feelings for Caleb. 

The relationship between Caleb and Sierra was like a forbidden romance. Sierra’s leaving to return back to her home in a few weeks so she can’t really start something serious with Caleb. Sierra and Caleb had a bunch of adorable moments that made me smile and a lot of the activities they did together helped enhance the festive vibes to this book.

Thorny Features

            I didn’t mind the main character Sierra. Even though she was a bit dull and nosey, she was sweet and outgoing. There would be times where she put her relationship with Caleb over her friendship with her best friends. Which I wasn’t a big fan of.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I rate this book a 3 out 5. I liked Caleb, he had a big heart and was just a really delightful character.  The relationship between Sierra and Caleb was sweet and had a lot of cute moments. This book had a lot of festive Christmas vibes to it, that I really loved reading but sadly this Christmas book to go. I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, you’ve just been reviewed.
